Students seeking an Associate of Arts degree in English (Writing Studies) must take CWRT 100. The course focuses the writer's efforts on the value of compression and the reduction of ideas to their purest forms. An in-depth exploration of imagery, metaphor and word choice through the study of poetry will prepare students to produce original compositions in any genre. Students will be expected to submit original writing for workshop in at least two of the four genres - poetry, fiction, non-fiction, or drama. The craft of writing essays and criticism on theory and form will be introduced.
A "C" or better in ENGL 12 or LPI level 4.
NOTE: CWRT 100 and 101 do not exempt students from the regular first year English requirements, i.e. English 110/111 or 112/114.
